tv Chris Jansing Reports MSNBC June 22, 2022 10:00am-11:00am PDT
and delivered to your door in as little as one hour. hello there. this is "chris jansing reports." the ever expanding investigation into the insurrection is about to get even bigger after the latest hearing outlined in great emotional detail the threats and violence fueled by the big lie. now, here's the escalation. nbc news has confirmed that never-before-seen footage obtained by a committee from the british documentary maker at the white house will include interviews with trump, his family, and mike pence before and after the insurrection. >> we're getting new footage. we're getting new information and we will be providing that to
the public. >> reporter: they talked to ivanka trump, whose comments seemed to contradict what she told the committee under oath about whether she believed the election was stolen. plus, easing the sting of gas prices. at the white house next hour president biden will call on congress to suspend the federal gas tax for three months. but is this proposal likely to hit a dead end in congress? speaker pelosi called it good pr just a few months ago. also on capitol hill, a major breakthrough in gun legislation with a senate vote coming as soon as friday. >> this is the most significant anti-gun violence bill that congress has voted on in 30 years. >> the senate action comes as new details about the uvalde school shooting massacre sparked new outrage. new testimony that the shooter could have been taken down in a matter of minutes, just adding to the devastation of victims' families. >> i just don't get how you can hear these kids, you know,
crying and asking for help, but you're scared to enter because your commander doesn't want you to go in. >> we'll have much more on that coming up. but first, we start with new developments on the january 6th committee's investigation ahead of tomorrow's fifth hearing. nbc's ali vitali is on capitol hill. we're joined by errin haines, msnbc political contributor. also with us, msnbc political analyst tim miller, writer at large at the bulwark, and paul butler, good to have you here. ali, talk to us about that documentary footage subpoenaed by the january 6th committee. what do we know what's on it and what the committee plans to do with it? >> chris, we got now reporting on that documentary footage. but we've also got new reporting from chairman benny thompson,
house producer caught up with him. thompson saying the last two hearings for the committee will come in july. we know that we have the committee's fifth hearing tomorrow afternoon. we were sort of counting to seven, told to expect that many hearings from the committee. thompson now saying those last two will be pushed to several weeks from now. this is sort of the juggling act that the committee has been doing over the course of the last few weeks, presenting its public narrative while also still clearly fact finding. the documentary footage, for example, is a great reason why they might be pushing these hearings. they're actively getting more information talking with this documentary filmmaker tomorrow here in washington. and in this footage he had access to people like ivanka trump, her brothers, and of course the former president. that's going to be really important as the committee tries to get as close as they can to the former president, trying to parse out what he was doing and what the thinking was in that inner orbit. congressman adam schiff speaking
to that challenge this morning. listen. >> it is hard for me to go into evidence that we are obtaining, but the reality is we are obtaining new information every day. and some of it involves video footage, some of it involves people willing to come forward, and we will be displaying some of this new information to the public, perhaps in the near future. >> chris, we've also confirmed what some of the footage in that documentarian's trove might be, including an interview with ivanka trump where she says her father should, quote, continue to fight until every legal remedy is exhausted. that's a much different tone than she took in her deposition with the committee. but we should point out you can't lie to congress, but you can tell different stories to documentary filmmakers. that's clearly something the committee is now going to be digging into as they have this new information. but what chairman thompson is telling o you are team now is really notable and important. it means these committee
hearings are stretching into the summer now. >> paul, you got all of this out there now. we don't know exactly what's in this documentary footage. we know it's extensive. we know they had a lot of access. we know it's before and after the insurrection. are there blanks in the narrative? mike pence, for example, that you think this documentary evidence could fill in? >> absolutely. so, chris, this is not like a trial that at some point all of this evidence is going to be presented to a jury. at some point the justice department might. but what the house is doing is mainly investigating, and the investigation is continuing even as the house rolls out some of its evidence and these nationally televised proceedings. we don't know what we don't know, but clearly people like pence and some senators,
especially some gop congressmen are implicated, and there needs to be more investigation. there shouldn't be a rush to judgment. this is way too important. >> yeah. and erin, paul is right. it's always worth remembering as we watch the hearings that they're investigating, but another part of this, what might be useful to the doj, right? so let's talk about the evidence, for example, plans to send fake pro-trump electors to washington from states joe biden won. i want to play some of that from the last hearing. >> what did the president say when he called you? >> certainly, he turned the call over to mr. eastman who then proceeded to talk about the importance of the rnc, helping the campaign gather these contingent electors. >> and what did dr. eastman want you to do? >> that we would, in fact, vote, take a vote to overthrow -- i
shouldn't say overthrow -- that we would decertify the electors. >> i mean, that testimony from a trump supporter, erin, how does all of that, the fake elector narrative fit into this overall investigation as you see it? give us clues as to where the hearings go from here. >> i think it's as ali and paul have said. there's still more we don't know. in these first five hearings there has been information despite everything that has already been reported by our colleagues around these hearings leading up to these hearings. there's still more that we are learning in each and every one of these presentations, which also could encourage other witnesses to come forward. you saw congresswoman liz cheney in her closing arguments encouraging people like paul cipollone saying there's still time for you to come forward. you should still come forward and speak to this committee and
address the american people about your role in this. so, you know, i think also in terms of now that we're hearing the role of these fake electors, or people that frankly were intimidating with political violence, people like shaye moss's grandmother, showing up at her home, what are the consequences for those people? were those activities criminal? what is the accountability mechanism for some of these fake electors. should they be held accountable criminally? i think that those are still open questions for a justice department to consider. obviously not, you know, the house's role or this committee's role to take criminal action against these people, but this is evidence that it's being laid out that could be picked up at a state or federal level going forward. >> yeah, the kind of stuff they are in, that raised all those questions like, can you just push your way into grandma's
house and get away with it? is there any consequence for that? this overwhelming evidence of a pressure campaign led by trump and rudy giuliani and the significant emotional toll it took on officials and election workers. let me just remind folks of what we heard. >> it is the new pattern or a pattern in our lives to worry what will happen on saturdays because we have various groups come by. >> it had his name, you committed treasonous, may god have mercy on your soul with a slowly twisting gif of a i'm trying to say and some people broke into my daughter-in-law's home. our son has passed and she's a widow and has two kids, so we're concerned about her safety also. >> there were people at her home and they just started pushing their way through claiming that they were coming in to make a
citizen's arrest. >> there's nowhere i feel safe, nowhere. do you know how it feels to have the president of the united states target you? the president of the united states is supposed to represent every american. not to target one. >> lives literally has collateral damage, a dying woman a widow, a grandmother. i'm sure you were following social media blew up with women and particularly women of color who understood what it is to be victimized and to be the ones who, by the way, lost their jobs. i just wonder your take on that, and again, the question, did anything happen to protect these american citizens? >> yeah. i mean, look, there are so many
people like me. chris, you know, i'm from georgia. voted as a young voter in fulton county. black women like ruby freeman were at those precincts where i went to cast my ballot, making me feel welcome, helping me to harp in this democracy. that was a badge of honor for women like them at one point. and now you saw the devastation, the pain on the faces of shaye and her mother, lady ruby, during their. the their lives will never be the same. this is the price of democracy for them. they were -- the people that were attempting to really perpetuate the big lie saw them as collateral damage. but now they end up being central figures in laying out the truth of what happened in the events leading up to 1/6. we know that shaye moss was given a john f. kennedy profile in courage award, and rightly
so, because she was doing the business of democracy in helping our elections to do what they have done now for centuries and expanding that. >> but she's afraid to go to the grocery store or have her name spoken out loud. >> that's exactly it. the human toll. people like shaye moss, ruby freeman, the family members of rusty bowers, brad raffensperger, they didn't sign up for this. they didn't sign up for political violence, you know, in the name of claims of a rigged election that wasn't true. and now people who were defending freedom on the front lines of democracy now feel less free and less fair in that democracy. what do we owe those people? where are they supposed to go from here? and who is going to be held accountable for what happened to them? >> yeah. and will people who watch this believe it? tim, after all this was laid out yesterday, one example was wisconsin senator ron johnson
was trying to dodge reporter questions, apparently pretending to be on a phone call because they were revelations his top aide tried to arrange a hand-off to vice president pence of the fake pro-trump electioners moments before the count was set to begin. take a look at this. >> how much did you know about what your chief of staff was doing with the alternate slates of re-electors? no you're not, i can see your phone. i can see your screen. >> that was a staff-to-staff exchange, and i was, you know, basically unaware of it. and the chief of staff contacted the vice president's staff. said, do you want this, no, and but deliver it and that's the end of the story. >> are you hearing of signs that some republicans may be starting to feel the pressure of the facts being laid out? >> ron johnson sure looked like he was feeling pressure yesterday. i was speaking to a former
republican wisconsin chair earlier who said there's plenty of evidence and i think the story is not over like ron johnson wants it to be, that johnson was actively a part of the effort to try to overturn the election. he signed a letter about alternate electors, so this was not a one-off thing getting it to pence. he's up for re-election this year. mike lee is up for re-election this year. there have been revelations about texts he was sending. so i think there will be political answers that will be -- that these senators will be forced to deal with going into the election. i'll say this about the committee. they have done a good job trying to speak to republicans and conservatives. think of who's testified, mike pence's lawyer, sterling, raffensperger, arizona speaker of the house. these are all conservatives, not moderate republicans, very conservative, hardline republicans who have spoken to this committee. this notion that this has been a democratic committee and republicans are going to tune out, the committee themselves
has rebutted that strongly. not every republican in the country, of course, but certain types of republicans that are really horrified by the actions of the former president. >> there's a through line here, it's many of them voted for president trump, said so, but also said that they felt their allegiance was to the constitution. thank you. tim, you're going to stick around for us. there's a new push to fight skyrocketing gas prices. president biden speaks less than an hour from now. he'll break down his gas tax holiday plan. plus, the new fight the white house is picking with a massive opponent, the tobacco industry, and why the president thinks he can win. plus, a plane caught fire on the run away at miami airport. look at these flames shooting out. what went wrong as it landed?
there's a different way to treat hiv. it's every-other-month, injectable cabenuva. for adults who are undetectable, cabenuva is the only complete hiv treatment you can get every other month. cabenuva helps keep me undetectable. it's two injections, given by a healthcare provider every other month. it's one less thing to think about while traveling. hiv pills aren't on my mind. a quick change in my plans is no big deal. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions, post-injection reactions, liver problems, and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection-site reactions, fever, and tiredness.
if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. every other month and i'm good to go. ask your doctor about every-other-month cabenuva.

we are looking ahead to the top of the next hour when president biden will directly address the pain you're feeling every time you fill up your gas tank of the he's going to call on congress to approve a three-month federal gas tax holiday. at least 18 cents off each gallon of gas you buy, and right now the national average for a gallon is just below $5, $4.96 according to aaa today, almost $2 higher than it was just a year ago.
the question is whether this proposal will move on the hill. in march, speaker nancy pelosi called the suspension very show biz, saying there's no guarantee to consumers' benefit. i want to bring in kristen welker. kristen, the biggest question on everyone's mind realistically, would this actually mean that much of a difference for the average person who has to fill up their tank? and can the president get this passed? >> those are the two big questions, chris, there's no doubt about that. look, in the short term there's no doubt it would give drivers and consumers some relief. and we know that they are set to hit the roads on the july 4th holiday week and weekend. part of this is aimed at getting ahead of that big holiday. but as you know, chris, as we've talking about for quite some time, this is a president who is under extreme pressure because of the high price of gas,
because of soaring inflation. he's under pressure to try to do something, and there are only so many tools in his tool kit. this is one of them, so he's using it. now, will it get passed? that remains to be seen. steny hoyer today saying he's not sure he has the votes to get it passed in the house. and we know that, as you mentioned at the top, chris, house speaker nancy pelosi has been critical of it in the past. she said it's good pr. but here's the challenge, and you have economists out today saying that in the long run it could ultimately push gas prices even higher. it could even be inflationary. so that's why you see a number of republicans blasting this move today, including leader mcconnell who called it an ineffective stunt. even some democrats were skeptical about this movement dick durbin said we need to be honest about it, it's going to have impact on money for infrastructure.
there are concerns this move could take away from some of those funds that would go to infrastructure. so there are a lot of challenges with this. this is a controversial proposal even though the pr of it might be good. the question is, what will president biden say when he speaks in just about an hour from now? he will undoubtedly underscore the fact that this will provide some measure of relief for drivers and that that is the bottom line goal here. >> michelle, address those questions about how much a gas tax holiday would actually help people, the concerns that have been expressed that it might fuel inflation. is this move largely political or could it help the average american? >> well, i think the biden administration is doing whatever it can to try to help americans. and so it will help some. those who are just struggling and maybe are not fully filling their tank to get to work. we had a story in "the washington post" where people were only half filling their tanks so that they could just,
you know, pay for the gas. so for those folks who are struggling living paycheck to paycheck, this could be a big benefit to them. but i think all the signs are that he's not going to be able to get it through. it's so short term and you don't want to do anything that would increase the amount of people who are saying, oh, okay i'm getting a sprinkle, let me drive even more, which would boost prices for gas. >> well, you speak about those folks who are living paycheck to paycheck, and there's a new poll out by politico morning consult that i think is quite revealing. 38% of americans would rather see a recession than the inflation we're dealing with. i read that to mean more than a third of americans are so pressed by what they're having to pay for gas, for food, everyday items, rent, that they'd rather see a recession. is that where we are right now? >> you know, i'm just going to
say this. if i can banged for it, i don't care. there's a great deal of americans where it is uncomfortable they're spending more, but they are not going to go under. you know, you got to stop complaining when there's so many people who literally the inflation rate means they may only have two meals instead of three. there are americans who did extremely well in the last two years in the market. you still have your job. and yeah, it's costing you more for gas, but guess what, you're still going to take that fourth of july holiday. so i'm going to need you to calm down and back off. it feeds into this fear and people making decisions that create the very thing they're fearful of. and you're in that category, calm down. stop looking at your portfolio. you know what you can do with that energy? help people, put food on the table of somebody else's house because you have extra. now, the other half of america,
realize what can you do and what you can do is continue to save. if you don't need to drive, don't drive. if you can put off a project, put it off. but if you're in the position to eat at the restaurant, even if the meal is a little bit more, go eat at that restaurant and help save a business that is still trying to limp through the pandemic. >> and tip your wait person. i can vouch for the mental help that it gives you not to open your 401(k) statement as i have not for many eskimos i'm grateful that i have a 401(k) michelle singletary, thank you. kristen, great to see you, my friend. a major breakthrough on capitol hill. 30 years of attempts. what will the new gun legislation mean for keeping people safe. and are supporters gearing up for a fight? plus, the fallout from that devastating quote, abject failure. the horrifying breakdown of why the shooting rampage lasted one hour, 14 minutes, 8 seconds,

today congress is one step closer to passing the first meaningful gun safety legislation in nearly 30 years. 14 republicans sided with all 50 democrats to advance the bill by the end of the week. it came the same day we learned devastating new details about the mass shooting that sparked that change. the texas department of public safety director calls response to the uvalde shooting an abject failure. the robb elementary building is now officially set to be demolished, but questions remain. what will other schools learn to keep their kids safer? should parents elsewhere be concerned? and what will this new legislation mean for preventing future deadly shootings of any kind? i want to bring in nbc's sam brock from texas. sam, i think it's a fair question to ask. who will pay the price for that failure in uvalde other than those families? tell us more about what we now know about what went wrong on that awful day. >> reporter: well, everything
logistically. law enforcement were inside the school, with respect to families, they lost something irreplaceable, and i'm not talking about their loved ones. certainly that's the case, but also peace and security. so they're going to demand answers on how this cannot happen again, how protocols can be tightened and law enforcement could be following the pre-established protocols. here's what's interesting. row land gutierrez, a local state senator, just filed a lawsuit. he wants information. the 911 audio recordings, body camera footage, surveillance footage from inside the school. there have been dozens upon dozens of public records requests made to the department of public safety in texas and the local d.a. as well, which have basically flatly rejected releasing any of that information. what mr. gutierrez is arguing is we can't know if these agencies that were all involved in the
response, who did what wrong, when, and how these communications got so mangled, we don't actually see what was going on in the moment. the state, despite its time line outlined yesterday, is not releasing any of that information. here is direct mccraw talking about how lives could have been saved if the law enforcement officers did what they were supposed to do. >> the only thing stopping the hallway of dedicated officers from entering room 111 and 112 was the on-scene commander who decided to place the lives of officers before the lives of children. >> reporter: chris, so much of this conversation right now has been what ammunition, what armor, certainly what fire power law enforcement officers actually had in those early moments. we found out yesterday it was at least two rifles and ballistic shields that arrived within about 20 minutes of when that exchange first started. and then another two shields ten minutes after that. but if you talk to law enforcement experts, they say
that does not matter. shields, no shields, ar15-style rifles or not, if you're on the ground and kids are dying, the paradigm has shifted since columbine, which was decades ago, you don't wait, you charge in. there was a communication breakdown and why is it these law enforcement officials didn't do what they have been trained to do? >> the other lesson of columbine is you probably are going to have to fight to get the information that the families want, need, and deserve. sam brock, thank you for staying on top of this for us. i want to go now to nbc's scott wong from capitol hill. scott, what are these new laws that have grown out of what happened in uvalde likely to accomplish? how much confidence is there that it's going to pass both chambers? >> well, there's a lot of confidence that it's going to pass both chambers. we saw 14 republicans in the senate come across and join democrats on a procedural vote that bodes very well that the senate is going to get the gun
bill done this week. nancy pelosi says the house will take it up soon thereafter. president biden has already said he'll sign it into law. so things are looking very bright for this gun bill by the end of this week. some of the provisions in it -- this was truly a compromise. republicans were able to get funding for school safety and mental health resources. democrats got a provision that allows law enforcement to access juvenile records when they undergo background checks for gun buyers under the age of 21. there were compromises on red flag incentives for states to development red flag laws, as well as a compromise language on how exactly democrats and republicans closed the boyfriend loophole. and so both sides feeling very good at this point. let's hear now from one of the chief negotiators, senator chris murphy from connecticut. >> i think there's a lot of
future legislation that becomes possible after we get this to the president's desk. what you'll find, i think, is that republicans will be more willing to engage because they will recognize that the sky doesn't fall when you support these common sense measures. in fact, you get a lot of support from unlikely place. >> reporter: and so senator murphy is basically saying this is a starting point with republicans. yes, we did not get everything, this is an incremental approach, a small-ball approach. he believes republicans will continue to stay at the table with him as democrats and republicans negotiate perhaps future gun legislation and build off this opportunity. >> also back with us is writer at large at the bulwark, tim miller. this bill passing is key, something a lot of folks have worked on for literally decades. 14 republicans in support of this legislation. we also know senator pat toomey, who's not in these pictures, also came out to support the bill. but then you have senator cornyn who is the top negotiator on the
republican side. he got booed in texas at a party convention over the weekend. i mean, do you think this has any political ramifications for republicans who voted for or against? >> yeah. look, i actually agree with chris murphy in the sense that i think this will break the conventional wisdom that republicans can't pass any modest gun control legislation because voters will push back. there are going to be extreme pro-gun voters. you're going to see the big activists like we saw in texas boo john cornyn. but overwhelming number of republicans support these measures. you'll see all 15 will suffer no political consequences from this, just like rick scott suffered no political consequences in florida when he was the governor and he signed a red flag law and moved the gun-buying age to 21. i think that will pop the bubble on this myth that republican voters are demanding this and
hopefully that can create more action in the future. i'm a little bit more skeptical than senator murphy on that front and i think democrats are going to need to run an aggressive campaign against republicans who want to stand in the way of things like moving the age up to 21 nationally. >> tim miller, scott wong, thanks, guys. appreciate it. just moments ago we heard from the white house pool. they said that president biden's remarks on gas prices is going to be delayed. we told you they were scheduled to start at 2:00. the white house says they'll be maybe an hour, hour and a half after that. as somebody who worked at the white house for three years, i can tell you that happens all the time. but coming up, we're going to talk about what else is going on at the white house. they got a plan to take on smoking. the huge fight the white house just picked with the tobacco industry and why the administration believes the numbers are on their side. you're watching "chris jansing reports" only on msnbc. no, he's seizing the moment with merrill. moving his money into his investment account in real time and that's... how you collect coins. your money never stops working for you with merrill,

over a proposed new role to curb smoking in the u.s. the plan, to reduce nicotine levels in cigarettes to minimally or nonaddictive levels. administration officials say it will make it easier for smokers to quit and prevent young people from becoming smokers in the first place. but they're up against a $95 billion a year industry that's already smaller than it was just last year. but the fda points to a bigger number, nearly $300 billion a year in direct health care and lost productivity costs from smoking. tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the u.s. it's linked to more than 480,000 deaths a year in this country alone. joining me now, nbc news white house correspondent mike memoli. the tobacco industry isn't going to let this happen without a fight, so what's the white house plan? >> chris, i think what's soing
-- so interesting is how the white house is framing. they're trying to reduce the number of cancer deaths in this country by half. it's an effort to reduce the number one cause of preventable detsds in this country, and that's tobacco use. they're also framing this as an issue of equity, citing the disproportionate exact of smoking tobacco addiction among black and brown communities as well. it's worth noting this is not the first time the white house is taking action that the tobacco industry is not happy with. they have already taken action to deal with menthol and flavored cigarettes targeting youth addiction to tobacco. but now the tobacco industry at this point is saying they're simply reviewing the rule that was published by the fda. they have a couple options here if they want to go up against this. the first, of course, is to file a legal challenge in court that's always an option. the second, though, is given the amount of time it takes for these kind of regulations to be finalized is they could simply wait it out. if the white house doesn't get
this enacted by 2024, a potential new president could come into office and reverse this action. i'll save the conversation whether this president is running or whether he'll be here in 2025 for another day. but a number of options on the table for the tobacco industry. >> that's a whole other conversation, mike memoli. thank you so much. breaking news out of florida. andrew gillum has been indicted alongside one of his longtime advisers for alleged fraud tied to his campaign against governor ron desantis. the 21-count indictment includes one count of lying to the fbi, one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, and 19 counts of wire fraud. in an earlier statement to nbc news, he acknowledged the case but denied any wrongdoing. saying, quote, every campaign i've run has been done with integrity. make no mistake that this case is not legal, it is political. in just a few moments, gillum

the oversight committee just released new findings of its own investigation. they conclude that daniel schneider, owner of the commander, conducted, quote, shadow investigations in an attempt to undermine investigators. >> the committee has also uncovered evidence that mr. schneider conducted a shadow investigation to target his accusers, pin the blame on others and influence the nfl's own internal review. the nfl was aware of his actions but failed to stop him. >> schneider was a no show at the hearing even as the nfl faces criticisms for failing to address allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct against his team.
schneider's spokesperson said the committee's decision to release a report and introduce legislation prior to the hearing is proof positive this was always going to little more than a politically charged show trial, not about uncovering the truth. deshawn watson reached an agreement with 27 women accusing him of sexual misconduct. what stood out about the hearing to you today? >> i'd say the back and forth between the panel of why are we here and doing this investigation and others acknowledging this is a significant issue, not just in the nfl, not just with the washington commanders but in the workplace in general. and prior to the hearing the committee announced legislation for two bills addressing the workplace protection of employees. so there was a lot of back and
forth more so than there was conversation about the issues at hand. >> i wonder, nicky, if what you make of the absence of commander dan snyder. talk a little bit more about that back and forth and what you think this means for the commanders. >> yeah, this is a team that has been embroiled in scandals for years now, extending to not just former employees of the team but dan snyder himself. so this could lead to more severe penalty. the nfl is currently in the middle of another investigation, this one led by mary jo white regarding allegations made against snyder in february in another congressional panel. this could impact what they see as any sort of necessary
discipline for snyder then but sadly is one of many issues that is hovering over the team right now. >> not just that team obviously. it seems like there's always another year, another set of allegations, more controversy. so big picture. what does this investigation on capitol hill, the allegations made against deshawn watson and the ongoing controversies tell us about that culture and whether or not roger goodell is making good on his promises to doing is about it. >> we certainly hear about the high-profile cases, whether this is a pervasive cultural issue within the nfl, i don't have to but i do think of it as an important issue that clearly the committee finds important
enough, too, to do more investigating, to provide additional protections for employees, to avoid going through something like this again. >> nicky, great to have you on the show. thank you so much. appreciate it. we also have some new data points on the power or lack thereof of former president trump's endorsements from key primaries. let's talk about a high profile alabama race. britt beat brooks overwhelmingly in the republican senate primary. she got trump's backing. nbc news projects that rich mccormick, a veteran and e.r. doctor won his primary over trump's pick jake evans and trucking company owner mike collins defeated trump-endorsed
